MY TREO 650 KEEPS TRYING TO HOTSYNC(and its not connected to computer)

Last week my treo 650 just started trying to hotsync over and over again and its not connected to anything.....I did everything from soft to hard reset and then finally a zero out reset and still keeps doing the same thing. i searched a bunch of forums on this and still haven't found not one solution. Any help would be greatly apreciated. Oh, its an unlocked cingular 650, in case this helps. thanks!!! Palm Treo 680, restarts, and constantly keeps trying to sync, not connected, not in cradle, totally clean, with or without cards. Connecting with the desktop using Cradle/Cable cancel button works, its just syncing again after 1-2 seconds

    yes, hard reset done, and seems it did.
    it powers up and lets you chose timezone etc, but in background already beeping like some button stuck, as soon as you go through first screens it clicks to hotsync.
    tried to connect to the computer, and it syncs correctly. As soon as its done, trying to hotsync again :-(

    Same problem on my treo 680. keeps hotsynching....
    I suspect that the hotsynch plug is broken, or has humidity inside.
    I used the treo with wet hands this morning, and it started soon after.
    After having had it on the heater for a day, it worked normal again until I had a call and used my finger under the plug to support the phone.
    It immediatly started again hotsyncing.
    I will dismantle it next week, and use the spare 680 until then.
    Let you know if it ended in the bin or my pocket...
    Good luck to all.....

    Same exact problem... I hate this phone.. Mine also loses reception often

  • echo2fox May 08, 2008

    I have the same problem. Mine will continue this intill the battery has died. I can't receive or place any calls while it's in this mode. I have tried re-installing, hard reset, even company software patches. Nothing seems to work.

    My Palm Centro keeps attempting to HotSync, but it's not connected to anything. It keeps beeping like it's still trying even though it says there is a "connection problem". Has anyone figured out how to stop this? With so many complaints, it's time to report to BBB!

    Take a look at the hotsync cable socket using a hand lens. There's probably dirt or something in there.

Did anyone find a solution to this problem? same problem-Treo 680. Please let me know.
The humidity answer sounds believable, mine was left in the car on a hot day and it went loopy, it's still trying to hotsync.

I am using Windows 7 and want to Hotsync my 1000s of Memo Notes from My Palm Treo 650, I got the latest Palm Desktop and Hotsync Manager but My Computer cannot Hotsync or even detet my Treo 650....Pls...


Palm Desktop compatibility with Windows 7 and 64-bit editions Palm Desktop 6.2 was designed for 32-bit editions of Windows XP and Windows Vista. You may be able to use this software with other versions of Windows.
Windows 7: Many users have successfully installed and used Palm Desktop 6.2 with Windows 7. Palm has not done thorough testing with a range of third-party equipment running Windows 7, therefore Palm cannot guarantee compatibility.
64-bit editions of Windows: USB HotSync is not supported. Instead, synchronize through a Bluetooth wireless connection: set up Bluetooth HotSync.

Vista hotsync


Older palm products and vista aren't compatible. You either needs to transfer info via bluetooth or upgrade your palm if you wish to continue using vista.

Treo 755p Getting Stuck During HotSync


If you have another computer you could try installing the software on that to see if the Treo will sync.
This would determine if it's a computer problem or if it's your Treo.

When you unchecked the datebook to sync after uninstall/reinstalling, was it able to sync then?

I have had other palms get hung up to a certain point during the sync, but uninstalled the program or disabled it from syncing like you tried and it usually works.

Unable to hotsync treo 600 with my computer


What is happening with the Sync? Does your PC and the Palm Desktop Manager recognize your TREO 600? If not, the issue may be that somehow the driver for your device was removed. I would suggest upgrading to the latest version of the Palm Desktop Manager and try plugging in your TREO 600 again and try synching.

Here is the location for the free software from Palm. http://www.palm.com/us/software/palmsoftware.html

You also have to make sure that the setting on the Palm Desktop Manager is the same as the type of cable you are using. If it is a USB cable, have that setting on your PC's Palm Desktop Manager Hotsync settings.

Treo659 reboots constantly


Try a reset first but you more likely a hard reset will take care of this but it will wipe your palm. Anything you have added since your last hotsync will be gone and there is no way to get it back.. After you do the reset the next hotsync should put your info and programs back on.

Treo 650 Sync w/ Outlook 2003


Please try the following: 1. Pop the Software Installation disk that came with your treo into your pc and allow it to autoplay. 2. After the disk begins playing, you will be prompted to choose your language-do so. 3. After a second a new dialog box will appear-Select the option "Change your syncronization method" 4. Select "Use Microsoft Outlook to manage Calendar, contacts, tasks and more. 5. Perform a hotsync 6. Open your versamail and hit the sync button
